Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was once prized for its fire-resistant properties, and consequently used heavily in construction across the globe until it was banned in the UK in 1999. Properties built before the 1980s may still contain asbestos, which is why it is important to have a survey carried out to determine if any asbestos is present.
An asbestos survey is a systematic process of identifying any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) present in a property. The property is inspected, and a sampling and testing process is carried out to determine the presence of any asbestos.
The primary reason why asbestos surveys are crucial is that asbestos-containing materials, when disturbed or damaged, become a significant hazard to health. Fibres of asbestos can become airborne and be inhaled, causing serious respiratory problems and sometimes leading to the development of lung cancer.
There are two main types of asbestos surveys:
The purpose of a management survey is to identify asbestos-containing materials that may be present in a building. The survey findings are then used to create an asbestos register for the property. This register will assist in the management of any asbestos found and is reviewed regularly.
These surveys are more intrusive as the purpose is to locate and identify all ACMs ahead of a planned refurbishment or demolition. This survey is more comprehensive compared to a management survey as intense sampling and testing of all building materials are carried out.
The cost of carrying out an asbestos survey in Hampshire varies depending on the type of survey required, the size of the property, and the number of samples required. The cost of surveys can range anywhere from 100 to 5000+. Thats a big discrepancy!
Typically, the cost of a management survey for a small to medium size property in Hampshire is around 300-500 (excl VAT), with prices increasing for larger properties or those with more complex or hazardous materials. A refurbishment or demolition survey may cost between 500-5000 or more depending on the complexity of the project.
Nevertheless, it is important to remember that the cost of an asbestos survey is a small price to pay when the potential health risks of asbestos are taken into account. It is better to be safe than sorry concerning the safety and wellbeing of anyone who may eventually come into contact with the asbestos-containing property.
